Die Inhaltsangabe kann sich auf eine andere Ausgabe dieses Titels beziehen.
Houlihan and Malcolm have produced a key text for our times. Drawing upon the work of internationally recognized scholars, the book locates the individual within the complexities of the social, political and economic matrix that characterizes contemporary sport. Moreover, the authors have skillfully managed to highlight the policy implications of contemporary issues within the global-local context. This will be an essential resource for both researchers and students seeking to understand the multifaceted and increasingly significant role of sport in society.(Professor Steve Jackson)
The third edition of Sport and Society provides an updated version of an inter-dsciplinary educational and research resource that presents an exciting blend of sociological, policy, historical and management perspectives on sport. The new edition retains contributions from an impressive list of internationally recognised sport academics, and adds new chapters on lifestyle sport (Belinda Wheaton); sport for development and peace (Richard Giulinanotti and Simon Darnell); the governance of international sport organisations (Arnout Geeraert); sports fandom (Kevin Dixon); and sport in East Asia (Alain Bairner, Jung Woo Lee and Tien-Chin Tan). The contributing authors canvass the social, political and cultural landscape of sport and weave in a theoretical critical discussion that helps to shape our understanding of sport as a social phenomenon. Insights are offered on how commercialisation, governance and globalisation impact the way we watch, play, organise and think about sport. This multi-faceted book provides readers with information and frameworks to draw and reflect on the connections between the local and the global in the study of contemporary sport.(Professor Tracy Taylor)
'This third edition of Sport and Society, with contributions from some of the field’s most highly respected scholars, covers the myriad of complex, pervasive and global issues confronting sport in the 21st century. It continues to be a foundation text for students across most sport disciplines'
- Russel Hoye, La Trobe University, Australia
‘The third edition of Sport and Society reinforces its place as one of the most valuable texts for students and others engaging in social scientific study of sport. Overall, the book continues to achieve an unrivalled balance between different social science disciplines that have been applied to sport; between local, national and international issues; and between broad overviews and specific detail on every topic. The end result is a book that is "a must" on many academic reading lists!'
